Example of approximately what these plants look like when shipped. See the eighth photograph of any plant to see a photo of what it looks like when shipped.
Vinca minor (AKA Myrtle, Periwinkle) is a low-maintenance delight - great for controlling soil erosion on shady or partly-shady slopes. An evergreen trailing vine with glossy green leaves. Stunning rich blooms cover the plant in early spring (rare for an evergreen groundcover), blooms persist sporadically summer through frost.

Rarely eaten by deer, tolerant of drought and infrequent foot traffic. Spreads quickly once established. Smaller leaves and greater cold hardiness than Vinca major.
